Doing the interiors of one’s house is no cake walk. It takes hell lot of time, energy, and tough decisions. Sometimes you get stressed due to the scarcity of options, whereas at times you get confused owing to multiple options available. One such major decision is to finalise the colours of the wall.
Use your color wheel to help you create your own color scheme that best fits your personality. There are 4 kinds of possible color schemes.
- Monochromatic. The monochromatic color scheme uses tone on tone of the same color with the addition of white or black to lighten or darken the color. For example, in this scheme blue can become a pale sky blue or a dark midnight blue and all three hues of the same shade are used to create this effect.
- Analogous. The analogous scheme uses colors that appear next to each other on the color wheel. For example, yellow will be used with green or orange, or blue will be used with green or purple. This creates a colorful and often soothing palette.
- Contrast. The contrast scheme is more dramatic. Here a triad of contrasting colors is used, such as yellow-orange, green-blue and red-purple. This introduces more color and energy into your home’s palette.
- Complementary. Lastly, we have the complementary scheme where two opposing colors, such as blue and orange, are used together to create a dramatic, bold and high energy color scheme.
